Financial expert Bill Carr joins Dental Elite team

Bill Carr has joined the Dental Elite team as a Finance Consultant. Regarding new services on the horizon for Dental Elite clients, Bill said: “I will be looking to develop relationships within the insurance broking business, providing additional services to all clients.

“Most people will require life cover or permanent health insurance when they buy a practice, so gaining information about and access to all this from us will be beneficial. We are also developing new partnerships with asset finance providers and looking to introduce opportunities for Worldpay card payments for our clients.

“Essentially, we’re hoping to offer some very useful add-on services for dentists who are setting up or buying a practice.”

Bill has been working in the financial sector servicing the dental profession for more than 32 years, gaining extensive experience. He started out at the original NatWest in St James’ Square, where he progressed from Assistant Manager for Lending to Business Development Manager for London, Surrey, Sussex and Kent, curating deals in the dental, medical and pharmaceutical sectors.

He later took on senior dental management roles and was a Director for Business Development in the sector. Bill left NatWest after 35 years to learn asset finance, and spent time brokering deals for clients looking to buy their own dental surgeries. He remained heavily connected to the dental profession throughout, attending shows and supporting various organisations with finance guidance for their clients.

Bill continues: “Dentistry is a great market – the people are so friendly and I have always enjoyed working in the sector. Especially in the current climate, I would advise dentists to see a broker whenever considering the purchase of a new practice. They will research the market for you and know exactly what the banks are looking for. They can help optimise your position.

“Unless you have a few days to do your own research, working with a broker is going to be much quicker and easier, and it costs nothing to get advice.

“In addition, anyone looking to build a group of practices will need to contend with different lending criteria. Understanding the best ways to finance multiple acquisitions without stretching the business is crucial, so support from an expert will be invaluable.

“I have known Luke and Paul from Dental Elite since they started the company. I encountered and collaborated with them during my time at the bank, so I am familiar with what they’re like and how they operate. They had approached me in the past to support their brokering services, but it was not the right time and I was committed elsewhere.

"Some eight years later, here we are – I am still more than happy to work with them. The company has grown a lot in the past few years and is definitely a good fit for me. I am already very involved and I look forward to helping them continue to grow this side of the business. Contact us for a free, no-obligation chat and see what options might be available to you.”
